What PowerPoint fonts can I use?

Most of the time, you'll want to keep your fonts simple and easy to read. You should only use fancy fonts, such as script or bold typewriter imitations if they match the theme of your webinar presentation. If a bold, crazy font does fit with your message, you should still limit it to title slides and headings.

  • Font Size: Your font size should be at least 28 point or higher. Anything smaller could be difficult for the audience to read, even on full-screen slides.
  • Supported Fonts: A list of supported fonts can be accessed here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/typography/font-list/
  • Custom Fonts: Are supported but must be embedded with the Powerpoint file.
  • Licensed Fonts: Licensed fonts are not supported by webinar.net. Please change them to another font or remove the license restriction before uploading the presentation.

Is embedding your font still not working after upload? 
Not all TrueType fonts can be embedded. Font creators can set different options for their fonts, including Non-embeddable, Preview/Print, Editable, and Installable.
To see what level of embedding your installed font is, go to 
Control Panel in Windows and click Fonts. Clicking on the font shows the Font embeddability setting.

Is your file size too large after embedding fonts? 
Certain fonts can be very large compared to others, so if the file size is a concern, consider using alternative fonts. If you want to remove the embedding, you can turn off the Embed setting in the Preferences dialog box (described in the procedure above) and save the file.

Then, once you close and re-open the file, a different font is substituted for the font that had been embedded previously.
